Guest Info



Tabu, is one of the leading film actresses in India. She has starred in numerous, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Marathi and Bengali language films. With a versatile banner of roles under her name, Tabu has a long list of recognisable films world-wide, her elegance and charm are present in both The Namesake (2006) and Life of Pi (2012).

Beginning her acting career in 1991 with a Telugu film Coolie No.1, she has since graced the big screen in over 70 movies and won over 14 awards. Her most critically acclaimed performances were in the films Maachis (1996), Kaalapaani (1996), Virasat (1997), Hu Tu Tu (1999), Chandni Bar (2001), Haidar (2014), Drishyam (2015) and the most recent Andhadhun (2018).

Tabu holds the record in receiving four Critics Choice Awards for Best Actress and has been honoured with Padma Shri by the Government of India in 2011.

A complete director's actor, Tabu is one of the very few actresses who can be defined by her versatility. Easily transforming from the quirky and colourful Divya khurana in Sajan Chale Sasural (1996) to becoming the quintessential girl next door, Veerandra, in Maachis (1996).

Known for her atypical approach to films, she is always found to surprise her fans with her selection of roles, providing a sense of unpredictability. A perfectionist at heart, as she continues to grace us on the big screen.
